Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ixia (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

Interview

The interview process involved 6 phone interviews, over the course of 5 weeks. The questions ranged from personal to technical, and customer management. Overall the interviewers were staff and management. They all seemed to be burnt out and totally over worked. They made it seem like the company would toss them on the sword daily.

After being grilled over the phone for 5 weeks and being told I was an excellent candidate, they requested I fill out a application. I did so, and then waited. A week passed and I was told by email they were NO LONGER HIRING. Then their in house recruiter told me they are now laying people off.

This is the worst company, don't trust them, they will lead you on and string you along.

    Interview

    Extremely rigorous. You should be on top of your technical game. They asked me to create 2 presentations - One on my knowledge about the roles & responsibilities of the job and one on a topic which I know very well.
